About the Book:

Deployment orders sent them overseas.
Lieutenant Grace "Gracie" Yates spent her deployment catapulting off the deck of the USS George Washington in an F/A-18 Hornet. A self-assured naval aviator, she was flying to keep the peace while being ready for war.
Major Bruce "Striker" Stanton, Air Force Pararescue Jumper, had been pulling pilots and Special Forces soldiers from behind enemy lines for twelve years. Bruce knew Grace was too good a pilot not to draw the tough flight assignments. She was on the front lines. If she got in trouble, his unit would get the call.
Separated by distance, they wrote love letters.
With demanding jobs, deployed to different locations, they kept their relationship alive by writing love letters. In the face of danger, they both leaned on the truth that God is sufficient no matter what the circumstances.
When she's shot down behind enemy lines, he's got one mission - get Gracie out alive...
A dogfight erupted. Gracie was determined not to be the first woman pilot shot down behind enemy lines. Babying her damaged plane homeward, she fought the necessity to eject. Her best efforts thwarted, her fighter jet went down. And now Bruce has one mission: get Gracie out alive.

My Rating & Thoughts:    ⭐⭐⭐

I listened to the audiobook, and I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I had read it. I felt like it sometimes jumped scenes with no warning, and all the details of what was happening during the missions in Turkey/Syria overwhelmed me at times. I did not like how character names and character nicknames were used interchangeably, I kept guessing who was being referred to. My favourite part was definitely the letters exchanged between Bruce and Grace, I loved watching their relationship develop through the letters. I really enjoyed the side characters of Wolf and Jill and how the four of them interacted. While I was happy with the last scene I didn't like the last line. It was good, but I need to know what the decision is.

(I purchased my copy of this book; opinions expressed
